Visit to the Maxim Brewery
Mon 10th February 2014
Meeting at The Maxim
The Rotary Club of Washington Forge moved away from it's normal meeting venue to visit the Maxim Brewery in Houghton-le-Spring. This 'micro-brewery' evolved after the closure of the Vaux Brewery in Sunderland with the aim of continuing the production and sales of some of the famous named beers of the north-east.
After an initial sampling of a choice of beer, members had an informative tour of the facility followed by a presentation on the history and development of the brewery.
A thank you to Rotarian Roger Dale for arranging the visit and to MD Mark Anderson, Susan Moon and Glen Whale for making it a most enjoyable and interesting evening.
l to r: Gary Whale, Susan Moon, President Rob Blair, Mark Anderson
